A Russian bus conductor could face criminal charges after forcing a nine-year-old girl without a ticket to walk home in sub-zero temperatures.

The child was thrown off the bus in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg despite temperatures outside reaching minus 30 degrees Celsius.

The conductor made no attempt to contact the girl's parents or the police when the child was found to have no money or travel document, the Sverdlovsk region Investigative Committee said in a statement.

Investigators have opened a criminal case on health and safety charges.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
